Bisping improves to 28-7 overall. Silva dropped to 33-7.

Bisping had one of the best performances of his career at O2 Arena in his home country and controlled most of the fight. He also survived a third-round knockdown to get the win.

There was a controversial ending to the fight — as many thought that Silva may have been the victor. Yet, the referee is the one — who always makes the final call — and he didn’t call the fight over when Bisping was knocked down.

With the win, Bisping may receive a championship fight with the winner of Chris Weidman vs. Luke Rockhold 2 this summer. He’s been trying to get a shot at the belt for a long-time.

Yet, he was previously defeated by Rockhold. The current champion said that he would be open to a fight with Bisping again.

Silva, a former champion, will try to get back on his feet. It’ll be hard to see that he’ll be in the championship picture with this loss.

During a seven-year stretch, he defended his championship 10 times when he had the belt.
